Comment: This firm recommended for corporate rescue is active for company owners and their companies or investors in delicate rescue attempts. HKLW’s actual role thus does not always gain public attention, and away from Hamburg and Munich competitors struggle to perceive the firm as a steady player in the insolvency scene. But the example of kitchen manufacturer Alno and subsidiary Pina show HKLW’s work in complex restructuring. The value of the Munich restructuring team was emphasized by a partner appointment. But the nationwide presence does not stem from this office’s activity alone – cooperation between Munich and Frankfurt and, esp. Stuttgart, increasingly leads to attractive work, e.g. for Sodecia as buyer of auto supplier Kemmerich or Trompetter Guss Chemnitz involving corporate rescue in insolvency proceedings.
